The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows those who have filed their taxes to transfer data from their filed return and answers to certain questions on the FAFSA.  This process saves time on FAFSA completion, reduces the chance for error, and can reduce the chance of being selected for federal verification.

If you choose not to or are unable to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, but are selected for verficiation, you must order a copy of your tax transcript and send to the Office of Student Financial Services.  

To order a copy of your tax transcript, please follow the instructions below:

1.) Go to the IRS website: http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript

2.) Click "Get Transcript Online"

3.) Create your sign in account.  You will be prompted to answer personal questions for your security. 

4.) You will then be asked which type of transcript you are requesting and for which year.  Select Tax Return Transcript (forms 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ) for year 2014. 

5.) The next step will automatically display your tax transcript in a PDF version.  You are then ready to print, save, and send a copy to the Office of Student Financial Services.

Federal Verification

When you receive your Student Aid Report in the mail, you may see the following message on the comments page:

"Your application has been selected for review in a process called verification. You must submit to your school signed copies of certain financial documents."

If you receive this message, you will need to submit copies of you and your parents' (if dependent) federal tax transcipts for the prior year along with either the Dependent or Independent Verification Worksheet. For example, if your 2015-2016 Student Aid Report is selected for verification, you need to submit copies of 2014 Federal tax transcripts to the Financial Aid office. Please be advised that we will no longer be able to accept Federal tax returns.  If you are a continuning student, you will not receive an award letter, and financial aid will not be credited to your account until you submit all required documents and verification is complete.
